It is widely acknowledged that we will not succeed in keeping a global temperature rise below 2°C without significant corporate leadership on energy. The Climate Group is hosting a networking event during Climate Week NYC to show how energy productivity, when combined with renewables, can provide the least-cost decarbonization pathway for leading businesses, and help to keep the world on course for reaching net-zero emissions well before the end of the century.

Participants will include member and prospect companies of RE100 and EP100 – The Climate Group’s major business campaigns, as well as partner organizations, financiers, policy makers, selected media, and other relevant stakeholders. 

A selection of leading companies signed up to RE100 and EP100 will be profiled on the progress they are making towards their goals of using 100% renewable electricity or doubling their energy productivity respectively, while influencing others to do the same. 

A panel discussion between business, cleantech innovators, and U.S. government policy makers will follow, and will examine how new, innovative and potentially disruptive technologies and business models can help to accelerate the clean energy transition. There will also be a networking reception and refreshments. 

Speakers confirmed to date include Rachel Kyte, CEO and Special Representative for the UN Secretary General for Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL); John Gaylen, North America President of Danfoss; Anirban Ghosh, VP of Sustainability, Mahindra & Mahindra; Melanie Nakagawa, Deputy Assistant Secretary for Energy Transformation, US Department of State; Greg Wetstone, President, American Council on Renewable Energy; and Alex Liftman, Global Environmental Executive, Bank of America.

Event is by invitation only.
